True fact: you may, someday, be more renowned than Taylor Swift. Equally true fact: you may labor and love in obscurity for all of your days. Most factual fact: either way, you’re in good company.
“Give it the old college try.” “Try to see it my way.” “Try, try, try to understand.” “Try a little tenderness.” “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” “These are the times that try men’s souls.” “This is trying my patience.”
